Enslow Publishers’ description: “Although Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov is best known for his experiments with dogs, which were key to the development of behaviorism, few realize that he actually won the 1904 Nobel Prize for his research on digestion. In this latest title in the GREAT MINDS OF SCIENCE series, author Barbara Saunders examines Pavlov’s enormous contributions to our modern understanding of the relationship between the mind and body.”

Award: Science Books & Films BEST BOOKS FOR JUNIOR HIGH & YOUNG ADULTS 2007 (American Association for the Advancement of Science): “. . . an interesting and thorough biography of the famous Russian scientist . . . One strength of this text is that Ivan Pavlov is characterized as a person influenced by his family and his colleagues, not as an isolated entity . . . This book is a useful introduction to classical conditioning.” 

Barbara Ruth Saunders is a writer, editor, and writing coach.
